Making their debut as an on-screen couple, Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt are all set to mesmerize and win hearts of the audience with their stellar performances in forthcoming film Gully Boy. The film’s teaser and track Asli Hip Hop was enough to excite both fans and critics and now the official trailer of the highly-anticipated movie is also finally out.
Ranveer, who is playing the role of a street rapper, seems to have outshined his previous performances. The young Mumbai guy, who aspires to be a rapper, finds inspiration to write and rap from the struggles of his life. Belonging to the lower middle class, he dreams big and aspires to achieve them.
Alia has aced her street girl avatar both in terms of her appearance and acting. She plays a Muslim girl named Sakina who is in a romantic relationship with Ranveer. The rebellious Sakina’s character, however, still remains unclear so it will be interesting to see how her role pans out in the film and whether or not we will see her rapping alongside Ranveer.
The trailer of the movie — based on the lives of two Mumbai based rappers Vivian Fernandez aka Divine and Naved Shaikh aka Naezy — makes use of various rap soundbites in Ranveer’s voice. Telling the story of the streets of Mumbai where hip-hop music is celebrated, Ranveer and Alia have again exceeded our expectations and from the trailer, it seems to be one of the most promising and groundbreaking performances of their careers.
The film which also stars Kalki Koechlin is slated for release on February 14th, 2019. Do check out the trailer:
